           Summary: SELECT with no-name generates invalid query String
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525.x (Safari 3.1)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: dhtmlkitchen at gmail.com

A SELECT element with no name is submitted. 
A SELECT with a selected, disabled OPTION submits the disabled OPTION.

This results in the unsuccessful controls generating values in query strings
and invalid query strings:


 *  "invalid" is the selected OPTION of a SELECT that has no name
 * "&=" is the selected OPTION with no value of a SELECT that has no name
 * "wrong=disabled" is the selected OPTION with the value "disabled" of a
SELECT with the name "wrong"

Instead, the submit with no name should not be submitted and disabled OPTIONS
should not be submitted.

If the selected option does not have a value, the browser may consider the
select to be unsuccessful. This would result in either the query string
"wrong=" or no query string. 

If there is no OPTION selected, the browser may select the first OPTION or the
first enabled OPTION. This would result in the test case:
 1) (no query string)
 2) wrong=enabled (only if the enabled OPTION were default selected).

|  If a control doesn't have a current value when the form is 
| submitted user agents are not required to treat it as a successful 
| control." [1]
